Vicente del Bosque confirms David de Gea will play Belgium

by Sam Peoples

Vicente del Bosque has confirmed David de Gea will feature for Spain in their friendly against Belgium.

The Manchester United goalkeeper was left as an unused substitute during Spain’s 2-0 win over England and much to the frustration of fans, and no doubt himself, he is still not getting enough opportunities at the highest level with Iker Casillas in the way.

De Gea will be given another chance on Tuesday to shine and his focus will now simply on doing well in that match.

“Great will play next Tuesday in Brussels,” Del Bosque said on De Gea.

We’ve got no doubt that Casillas has been a great player over the years for Spain but that doesn’t merit him a place in the current side.

Now is the time for change and switching Casillas out for De Gea is indicative of that change which is set to swipe across faces.
